 Turnbull dumped: let the revenge begin!

07.04.21.  What can be said about Malcolm Turnbull that hasn’t already been said? This blog has excelled in ridiculing a political pest whose ego knows no bounds. Ah, but some would say a gracious fellow brimming with gratitude for those who gave him succour during his fanatical rise to success. Just one  example among many for all to follow—a veritable benchmark of loyalty—was the Waffler’s undying gratitude toward the late Kerry Packer, whom, decades ago felt the sharp pain between his shoulder blades from the ever faithful Malcolm’s stiletto—a thank you gesture for all you’ve done—from your friend that has your back, literally! A nasty traitor, many cried! And the newspapers relished the news that Packer might put a hefty price on the Waffler’s head—but it never happened. Below is a video roundup of  Turnbullian traits and a few MM images used over the years. And this latest humiliation of being dumped from the, “Net Zero Emissions and Clean Economy Board” should send Big Mal into the foetal position under his bathroom sink.

Malcolm Turnbull dumped from new NSW Government climate job

NSW Energy Minister Matt Kean has backflipped on his decision to appoint Malcolm Turnbull as his climate energy tsar, dropping the former prime minister just days after his appointment.
The appointment of Mr Turnbull as chair of the Net Zero Emissions and Clean Economy Board had enraged some Coalition MPs who pointed to his constant criticism of the federal government since he was deposed in 2018.
One Liberal MP speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Australian: “This is just another stunning example of Matt’s appalling judgment”.
Several other Liberal MPs privately said the role was inappropriate considering he was simultaneously running Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest’s green steel investment fund.
In a statement released on Monday, Mr Kean succumbed to the pressure, saying the “focus should not be on personality”.
“No person’s role on the Board should distract from achieving results for the NSW people or from the Government’s work in delivering jobs and opportunities for the people of NSW,” Mr Kean said.
“For this reason, I have decided not to proceed with his appointment as chair.”
Mr Turnbull blamed the decision to dump him on “thuggery” from the “the right-wing media ecosystem”.
“The right-wing media — they cracked the whip as bullies do, and got their way,” Mr Turnbull told Nine Newspapers. “In actions like these, you have to ask, ‘who’s in charge?’”.
He also denied being against jobs in the Hunter but rather supported transitioning coal miners into new industries as the sector declined.
The NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer Hugh Durrant-Whyte will head the board until a replacement is found, Mr Kean said.
Mr Kean had faced ongoing criticism from sections of his own party and the media, with several questioning whether a letter sent by Mr Turnbull objecting to the expansion of an Upper Hunter coal mine was evidence he had a conflict of interest.
The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday reported Mr Turnbull had last month written to object to the expansion of the Mount Pleasant mine in Upper Hunter, where the Coalition is facing a by-election fight with One Nation and Labor and where support for coal is a key issue.
In the letter, which Mr Turnbull cosigned with his wife Lucy, the former Wentworth MP cited worsening air quality, saying the existence of other mines in the area had done “considerable damage” to the local environment, which included his family’s nearby 2700 acre grazing property.
Coalition sources were concerned Mr Turnbull’s appointment could prove detrimental to The Nationals chances of retaining the Upper Hunter seat at the upcoming by-election.
Deputy leader John Barilaro labelled the decision to drop Mr Turnbull as a “great result for common sense”, saying he had personally given the benefit of the doubt to Mr Turnbull but “he pulled my pants down within 48 hours”.
“We are not proceeding with the appointment of Malcolm Turnbull as chair. I give credit to Matt Kean. He accepts even if you want to go down this position of Net Zero board and that target you don’t need an individual who clouds or makes controversial – you need someone who brings people together and not divide and unfortunately Malcolm has done the opposite,” Mr Barilaro told Ray Hadley on 2GB.
NSW opposition leader Jodi McKay said the decision to appoint Mr Turnbull was a “monumental failure of judgment”:
“How on earth did it even come to this? John Barilaro backed Turnbull’s appointment in cabinet. This should never have been a political appointment and was always going to be divisive. A monumental failure of judgment by John Barilaro.’’

    This Barilaro character could give Jimmy Spithill a run for his money when it comes to changing tack

    • DT 07/04/2021, 1:06 pm

      As he said at the time the appointment was announced, the Nationals are the junior partner based on numbers in the Coalition and he was not prepared to go to war over it.

  • Botswana+O'Hooligan 07/04/2021, 8:08 am

    If nothing else turnbull is a constant reminder of the ineptitude of the liberal party.

    • DT 07/04/2021, 1:09 pm

      Not so, it is however a reminder that the Turnbull Party faction still has influence, albeit not as much as it has been, and Minister Kean is the leader of the left faction in NSW.

      This battle for control spans back to the Howard Years, as anybody that bothered to read the stopturnbull History Timeline link would know.

      Bots: I agree with you in that the Liberal Party are inept, they are the creators of their own doom, which, unless the Libs embark on a big ‘reset’ back to conservative values, they may as well merge with the Labor Party, as the differences between Labor and the Liberals diminishes to almost none.

      The coming federal election will be interesting to say the least.

      I wonder if the Libs are even aware of the base plan of Labor of which was the regionalisation of Australia (council amalgamations were the first step), dispense of the State Governments and turn Australia to a Republic. Now the Queen is not far from leaving us, you have probably noticed the hysteria ramping up against the current federal government by Labor on all fronts as they think will gain Labor brownie points to enable securing government next federal election, should the Queen retire or pass away during this term, London to a Brick on, Labor will ramp up the push for a republic.

    The political class!!! You wouldn’t give two bob for the whole lot of them in one bag.

    • DT 07/04/2021, 1:09 pm

      I would say many of them, not the whole lot of them.

  • crankykoala 07/04/2021, 8:34 am

    To think this TURD still has followers/allies in the present coalition government beggars belief. Time for Scomo (if he can) to call out these bastards and tell them to either “shape up or ship out”.

    • Cliff 07/04/2021, 9:01 am

      That would involve the impossible – Scottie calling himself out.

    • Tony+H 07/04/2021, 10:24 am

      Many believe that ScoMo is one of them!

    • DT 07/04/2021, 1:13 pm

      Please explain how the PM would be in a position to dictate to the Executives and noting that the Turnbull Party faction has influence in Party HQ?

      Labor is no different, Union controlled, many factions and therefore, as with LNP, the numbers count in decision making.

      Remember how PM Rudd was rolled and PM Gillard installed, “faceless men” of the Union Movement, and women, making the decisions?

  • Sir Peter 07/04/2021, 8:44 am

    Matt Keane is a fool. He has to go.

    Anybody supporting the green/left agenda has no place in the Liberal Party if it claims to be representing conservatives.

    If the party persists in being “Labor-lite” it will destroy itself.

    • DT 07/04/2021, 1:16 pm

      As readers of stopturnbull know, wrecking the Liberals is an objective of the Turnbull Party leftists, Get Abbott was an example, and earlier Get Nelson, but further back Costello and Howard were subjected to undermining.

      But there are real LNP MPs and Members who are fighting back, Tony Abbott remains one of the leading centre-right fighters.

      On the Union Labor side what do you think Joel Fitzgibbon is doing? He is trying to drag the Party back to the centre-left position, and others support his work.

    • Aktosplatz 07/04/2021, 9:55 pm

      Agreed SP, Keane has reiterated his regret Turnbull lost out and still claiming he would have been the best person for the job’

      He has to go.

  • Aktosplatz 07/04/2021, 9:06 am

    I have never known such a public failure in Politics. I remember the 2016 election, after backstabbing Tony Abbott in 2015, he lost all of the seats Abbott had gained. And then refused to come out of his Harbourside Mansion until about midnight to announce his (very much reduced) majority, utter coward he is.

    Everything he touches turns to sh*t

    And he’s still around big-noting himself! Time for a Cancel Culture, I think.

  • nev 07/04/2021, 9:10 am

    The first and most obvious action is to kick the green backstabbing bastard out of the party, Howard’s folly finally remedied.

    • DT 07/04/2021, 1:18 pm

      Howard’s folly?

      Do you know the full story or are you repeating snippets, part of the story as I see it.

      • nev 07/04/2021, 2:40 pm

        Hello DT, been let out of Malcolm Morrisons Properganda room for your morning foray to pee on a few fence posts and make a nuisance of yourself. Normally I am much the same as all of the 7 or so comments above who simply ignore you, wouldn’t give you the time of day, but as one of the astute females in this household has observed. Your psychotic groupie-like suck up to your Master is all almost as pathetic as the vitriol you spew at every opportunity towards “Mansions” (maybe it’s unhealthy wealth envy) but the reason I’m taking a few moments is to ask, has it occurred to you that you and Turnbull might be identical twins? I believe many people might think that observation is close to the mark.

      • Pensioner Pete 07/04/2021, 3:32 pm

        nev: 😉 ROFL.

      • DT 08/04/2021, 11:27 am

        Hi Nev,

        Your response reveals your ignorance again, by the way “Mansion” is a nick name first used by Peta Credlin to highlight the introductory letter sent out by the then new MP for Wentworth as follows;

        Malcolm Bligh Turnbull
        Harbourside Mansion
        Sydney Harbour

        Dear ************

        If you had bothered to read the comprehensive Timeline History of the stopturnbull website link I have posted here many times, but obviously ignored by ignorant people who prefer to bask in their ignorance.

        Now lean back in your armchair and try not to get too upset.

  • Lorraine 07/04/2021, 9:13 am

    You just have to laugh Malcolm believes he was shafted by the media, the most hate man in Australia was removed by people power,,,,,,,Matt Kean better improve or he will see people power remove his left Green tinge as well. Liberals are sick of the LINOs’

    • DT 07/04/2021, 1:20 pm

      I believe that Matt should be on notice, but his left leaning mate Gladys needs a wake up call as she is another Turnbull supporter.

      What a pity, she is doing a good job as NSW Premier.

      But perceptions of voters is all important and the left keep damaging the image.

  • Disgruntled 07/04/2021, 9:27 am

    I am getting quite sick of hearing about this dill and the Libs haven’t got the guts to expel him; Gosh how very ordinary are they??

    In another article today some commentors speak lovingly and
    ?jokingly? about their old mine shafts. That is where this idiot needs to be put; very discreetly of course.

    The world has gone mad hey? Now Sleepy Joe has his son Hunter put up high on a pedestal: What next?????

  • ozisceptic 07/04/2021, 9:50 am

    I will read all later.
    What he said and did to people he did not like, or wanted to ursurp, is amazing.
    So that gives him a certain diagnosis.
    Does that exclude him from public office? No, I say reluctantly, but he must be a proven performer in that role and not be allowed to harass colleagues.
    Many hated Trump, but allowed him in, as they saw he would perform in certain areas. Except for Covid, he did.

  • Graham+Richards 07/04/2021, 12:22 pm

    Waffles is still a leader. He has the distinction of being the shortest serving chairman of anything in history.

    Raspberry chorus please everyone!!!😝😝😝😝

  • luk1955 07/04/2021, 5:35 pm

    I saw this on the news site and was laughing my ass off and slapping my legs. Karma strikes again.

  • JG 08/04/2021, 5:28 pm

    NSW Gov has a number of clowns as ministers this Energy Minister and the Health Minister for starters. Get rid of the woke clowns now,
    Turnshit back in the tent to do nothing but burn it and the Feds down. Clown fish has far more brains.
